Post Malone Spends $1.6 Million on New Diamond-Encrusted Fangs
| LAST UPDATE 06/15/2021
Post Malone has turned his body into a walking, talking, work of art. From his head-to-toe tattoos and his statement mustache, fans have come to love his signature look. But it seems as though the ink wasn't cutting it anymore. So the Circles artist decided to switch things up a bit with a brand new set of teeth worth over one million dollars.
The Grammy-nominated artist splurged on a set of veneers that came with bedazzled fangs. And just how bedazzled you may ask? Well, according to E! News, the total came in at 12 carats worth of diamonds. The I DID IT singer knew he wanted a bold smile, and went to one of the best in the biz, Dr. Thomas Connelly. According to his bio, he's known as "The Father of Diamond Dentistry," and after seeing Post's new look, we understood why. The diamond doc pulled out all the stops for his celebrity client, and went further than he'd ever gone before.
"This is the first time I've ever done something of this magnitude," Dr. Connelly shared with E! News. "I've done little diamonds here and there that have been inlaid in a veneer, but this is the entire tooth." And it wasn't easy to pull off. "It took us a long time to figure out how to engineer it so that it not only looked good... But that it functioned," the dentist explained. And pushing the envelope came at a hefty cost for Malone. "Let's just say Posty has a million-dollar smile," Connelly hinted. The whole procedure rang in at $1,600,000 according to Thomas, but the results were worth it. "It sparkles like you've never seen."
And in Dr. Connelly's eyes, this was a long-term investment for the beerbongs & bentleys artist. "These are meant to stay in... They're not going anywhere," he assured. And with Post iced up for the foreseeable future, it appeared a new trend was in the making. "We've got a lineup of people that have now inquired. We're talking dozens," Dr. Connelly shared.
So there you have it. If you've got a spare $1.6 million hanging around, make sure to hop in line for your chance to get Post Malone's smile and shine bright like a diamond.
